with training, and you have to create an environment where you understand that is going to happen and it is not necessarily a career injured. we are working on it. it is absolutely essential that we do. when i came in, we notice that 70's are of our public diplomacy dollars were spent on a demographic over the age of 35. we said looking at the world, the fact is that you have a far better opportunity of planting the seeds with a younger demographic which is what i was so supportive of the program. he said it is so it difficult when you wreach those. when you're younger you have an ability to do that. if we can have a good conversation with a young girl in pakistan she will be able to change the perception of the united states in a way that we never could. it is the wisest testament not just for the future but for whitright now. >> we have a clash of technology in future. it is going to play out. she came across this egypt influenced network. if you google it, it is this blob of blue, red, purple circles. to the blue are people tweeted in english. the right people in arabic. the pu

environment for stocks. >> that means you'll get some uneasiness extending into 2013. it won't have the cliff aspect at least in the first half of 2013. so, the can is kicked down the road. you'll have more like a simmering uneasiness waiting for washington to stay focus and arrive at a compromise. >> reporter: as to whether a solution on the fiscal cliff will result in a rally for stocks here on wall street. experts say the answer to that is yes. suzanne pratt, "n.b.r.," new york. >> susie: still ahead, a major deadline gets pushed back for health insurance exchanges, a key part of president obama's health care reform. >> tom: lunch box staples for generations of kids could be history. hostess brands-- the maker of twinkies, ho-hos and wonder bread wants to sell everything to liquidate the company and go out of business. it's asking a bankruptcy court for permission. as diane eastabrook reports the move follows months of financial problems and labor un-rest. >> reporter: hostess brands says it decided to liquidate after a strike by members of the bakery, confectionery, tobacco workers, and g
remains cheap is by workers very little. but as you say there are environment externallalities as economists like to call it. the ways in which the food companies push out the environmental costs of what it is that they produce. they push out the healthcare costs, when we buy a dollar burger built into that dollar is not the long term healthcare cost of eating foods that is high in salt and fat but these are the ways that corporations manage to avoid the full costs. >> gavin: you talked about $200 hamburger. has there been actual work through the economics of a hamburger? >> yes the 200-dollar burger is an idea that came from a bunch of researchers in india. if this burger comes from a cow that was grazed on land that once upon a time was rain forest we can factor in the loss ecoservice and that's just the footprint. that does not include the low wages that are paid in the food industry or fields where even today we have workers who are living in conditions of modern day slavery. they're growing the tomatoes that end up in our burgers. the $200 hamburger is just $200 because of
know white house environment -- involvement was not an isolated incident. the energy and commerce committee of the house of representatives, e-mails specifically refer to joe biden and his staff advocating for solyndra, the solar panel company that received $528 million in loan guarantees before declaring bankruptcy in september of 2011. solyndra was rushed through in september of 2009 so that vice president joe biden could appear at the opening on september 4th. on august 31st, days before and, a communications aide to the vice president asked them to speed this up and there was pushed back from career staff at the office of management and budget. kevin carroll was chief of the office of management and budget energy staff, quote, i would prefer this announcement be postponed. this is the first loan guarantee and we should have a full review with all hands on deck to make sure we get it right. they didn't get it right and five hundred twenty-eight million taxpayer dollars were lost. it could be seen that the energy loan guarantees and a notoriously unsuccessful record. of the 33 e
changing rapidly as a factor in the environment is to knowledge across the board, primarily information technology in various manifestations and that seems like a drastic reshaping, but also can have effects on where the apparent power resources, traditional kinds of nontraditional kinds. although we often highlight the potential for empowered individuals can go around and cause havoc using new technologies and new dangers and threats, there's a new bond film out. every bond film has featured some transnational nonstate actor going on with the technology causing havoc. i'm not sure how terribly new threat that is. new technologies seem to reinforce the power of existing orders. if you think of the degree to which the national ecological revolution has reenergized the north american energy markets is fundamentally reset politics towards the traditional powers in the west rather than away from them come when you think about drones in the war on terror and the degree to which technology has allowed a tight footprint that is far more effective in many respects than the specific task of gett
that is impacted. >> you've written that climate change has little to do with the state of the environment, but much to do with the state of capitalism and transforming the american economic system and you see an opening with sandy, right? >> i do see an opening because, you know, whenever you have this kind of destruction there has to be a reconstruction and what i documented in the shock doctrine is that these right-wing think tanks leak the american enterprise institute and the cato institute and heritage foundation, they historically have gotten very, very good at seizing these moments of opportunity to push through their wish lists of policies and often their wish lists of policies, after hurricane katrina there was a meeting at the heritage foundation just two weeks after the storm hit. parts of the city were still under water and there was a meeting and "the wall street journal" reported from it and the heading was 31 free market solutions for hurricane katrina and you go down the list and it was -- don't re-open the public schools. replace the public schools with vouchers and drill
in the foot at a time when the global environment is much more difficult. see what is happening in europe, in the middle east and china. secondly, we just had an election, ali. the message, one of the messages of the election was one of shared responsibility and farrer burden sharing. it's a period in which the rich have done extremely well. not just on the up side, but also in terms of being protected on the down side. >> fin finally and importantly, the economic arguments against this while they'll be valid at higher tax rates are not valid here. so if you look at the hand that president has, it is stronger than what the republicans and i think both of them will want to seek some sort of compromise. >> sounds so reasonable. let's bring stephen moore in. he is a writer at the "wall street journal." he's conservative. stephen, do you agree? are republicans ready to strike a deal with the president if it means giving up the bush tax cuts for the wealth. >> i they have dug in on this. >> i don't know, ali. i listen to this conversation. i feel like i'm living in france. i mean i just don't
to day livelihood in plays like west virginia, louisiana. while their environment is being destroyed, if you think about louisiana as a state that is being literally destroyed by the industry that employs a good number of the people there. so every mechanism in that state is designed to protect an industry that's destroying the state. but people as real lives are tied to it. even democrats, someone like jay rockefeller who is considered a great prerogative when it comes to coal, he's are with the republicans. >> anyone who is going to be elected -- there are certain places where it's the geographic interests override the ideological ones. >> that's why is we need some actually leadership from the president, and others on the really central issues. i mean, look, climate change is the legacy issue of all legacy issues. you know, 100 years from now, the only thing that people are going to look back on 2012 and care about. the fiscal cliff or the -- it's like, you guys the arctic melts and you didn't do anything about it? why is that? >> keystone is one pipeline. the canadian company is
whether we have to compete. you have to benchmark what your tax environment, your regulatory environment, your energy costs. the good news is in terms of getting manufacturing, we're still the world's largest market. when global investors take a look at the u.s., and canada's rate is 15% and hours is 35%, where are you going to site your plant? $1.75 trillion a year, a number that is larger than all but 80 economies in the world. it is not particularly attractive. when this administration refuses to utilize our domestic energy resources, refuses the keystone pipeline which would bring jobs and energy down to america, they reject that. that is not attractive in terms of global investment and job creation. the caller also talked about what caused the deficit then been a lot of charts and graphs dispel some myths. over four years, the total deficit was 5000 $92 billion. the taxes on the wealthy over that same time was $136 billion. all other americans was $544 billion. total cost of the bush tax cuts and the wars was about $1.30 trillion which means 75% of the deficit was caused by other sp
system. so it's awkward to support a group like this. but there is support for it in this environment. the system will dissolve because there's resistance. >> trevor, i often feel when you talk to political operatives on both sides and fundraisers on both sides and donors, there's a strong word, but it's kind of a self hating quality to the people who are participating in the system. they feel trapped. this thing is going to go on and therefore the plaintiff used to it. is that what is sustaining this? >> well, during the course of the campaign i had a chance to talk to a range of major republican donors and even may feel republicans are more interested in the super pacs. the party had embraced them and citizens united. i thought rummy donors say to me, this is terrible. i don't want to rent an unlimited check if this is not our president not to get selected and we need to talk about this after the election. so now i think one of the things that i be doing is certainly untruths are you back around and say are you into changing the system? if you look at it, even the candidates are pri
't have a silver spoon. he had a grew up with a single mom and even in his environment being that he grew up a lot with white people and things that have nature. >> lincoln lost his mother at a young age. very close to his stepmother who in certain ways had similarities. >> losing rays. lincoln ran for congress and lost. same as barack obama. but yet, persevered and continued with the focus, to move on forward and understanding still peoplecrit stizing you but you're ready to take that criticism because you want to take the next step. sometimes if you're sincere, you don't know right away what the right thing is to do. you've got to think about it and ponder and walk around. as president obama did surely even when he went after osama bin laden. he didn't know. he said i've got to sleep on it. what's the right thing to do here. sometimes you've got to make the right decision and sometimes you may make the wrong decision. >> there's a preference for come tem plative president. sort of weigh in on this for me. >> i think that certainly the falling to your knees at a time of conflict that com
it, is the things we are doing to the environment, making these things more unbearable. construction, an earthquake there was one in chile that killed less than a hundred people, fewer than a hundred people. all of these things, and people have been forced to leave the countryside, to come to the city. so we often also discussed these things and how devotion in the land -- how it causes us to have these massive mudslides and flooding when a hurricane goes through. these things, they are more of the things that we can do something about as a community. but these other theories, they are also talked about. >> host: in reading through your book, "so spoke the earth: the haiti i knew, the haiti i know, the haiti i want to know", i was struck that so many writers return to haiti. >> guest: i think so many of us come as children. we were a lot like our parents. arkansas like they had no choice to leave. so you do have this yearning for your country. and i have a lot of family that i did quite a lot. but there is this yearning, things that are parents described as a paradise and things to f
